Correction: Nigeria violence story

In several stories in January and one on Feb. 24 about violence that struck the north Nigeria city of Kano, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the city's population was about 9 million people. Nigeria's 2006 federal census listed Kano state, of which Kano is the capital, as having a population of 9.4 million people. The city of Kano is home to an estimated 4 million people.
